According to the review of approximately 300,000 patients by Sikander Ailawadhi, MD, Oncologist, Division of Hematology-Oncology, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL, and colleagues, there was also significant heterogeneity in practice patterns across all characteristics studied.

An interrupted time-series analysis by David Merola, PharmD candidate, Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy, Shenandoah University, Winchester, VA, and colleagues, showed a significant increase in missed workdays per month after the initial diagnosis of multiple myeloma among patients who received oral or injectable cancer therapy.

Treatment with ivosidenib, an IDH1 inhibitor, resulted in an objective response rate of 41.6% in a phase 1 dose-escalation and expansion clinical trial of patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia and IDH1 mutation, according to data presented at ASH 2017.

The World Health Organization’s pain ladder for cancer recommends opioids for the treatment of moderate-to-severe pain in patients with cancer, and is a mainstay of cancer pain therapy.

Available preclinical and clinical evidence suggests that inhibition of PD-1/PD-L1 pathways increases antileukemic responses in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Midostaurin, a multikinase inhibitor targeting FLT3 and KIT, is indicated for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed, FLT3 mutation–positive acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in combination with standard induction and consolidation chemotherapy, based on demonstrations of superior survival outcomes versus placebo in the randomized, double-blind, phase 3 RATIFY trial.

Enasidenib and ivosidenib monotherapy have demonstrated induction of clinical responses in patients with mutant IDH (mIDH) relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML), whereas azacitidine (AZA) monotherapy prolongs survival in older patients with the newly diagnosed (ND) AML.

Enasidenib (AG-221) is a novel, small-molecule oral inhibitor of mutated IDH2 (mIDH2) proteins that is currently indicated for the treatment of adult patients with mIDH-positive relapsed or refractory (R/R) acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

The current study found no clear evidence linking eltrombopag treatment and risk for cataract development/progression in patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
The current post-hoc subanalysis of a phase 4 open-label study concluded that the effects on platelet counts after eltrombopag treatment for >2 years was comparable between the persistent immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and the chronic ITP cohorts, with similar safety profiles.
